Hey congrats...I just got mine from Amazon today as well.

You didn't say what focal length you need, but a low-cost option is the 50mm F1.8.

I agree on the cheap feel of the kit lens, but it will be fine until I figure out what I really want.

hey texan,

the best value in telephoto 2.8s is the sigma 70-200 2.8 ex dg hsm. (hsm=usm).. very sharp and contrasty lens for around 800USD.. throw a 1.4 teleconverter in and you have a f4 that goes out to 280mm... great for moderate distance sports coverage..

if you want a shorter 2.8.. the sigma 24-70 2.8 ex dg is a great performer and a great value at around 400USD.. great portrait lens..

these two lenses would make a fantastic combination.. of course canon makes some fine performers in both of those focal lengths in their L-series.. the drawback is that they will cost you considerably more..

best regards, dustin
